MANHATTAN, Kan. – Nathanael Vogt has been selected to receive the Orsheln’s Farm and Home 4-H Scholarship, an educational award from the Kansas 4-H Foundation.
The scholarship was presented at the 4-H Emerald Circle Banquet held June 3 in Manhattan, Kansas.
The state 4-H scholarship program is open to 4-H members, and the awards are made on the basis of an application and review process, said Gordon Hibbard, president of the Kansas 4- H Foundation.
This year, Hibbard said, the foundation is providing more than $37,000 in scholarships to fund post-secondary education. The dollar amount of the awards varies, and averages $743 per award.
“The state 4-H scholarship program is made possible by donors, who often are former 4-H members thankful for educational experiences they enjoyed and benefitted from in 4-H,” he said.
Businesses and organizations also support 4-H youth development and the scholarship program.
This spring, Nathanael graduated from Marysville High School. He is a ten year member of the Bremen Hustlers 4-H Club. He will apply the 4-H scholarship toward the study of agribusiness or agronomy at Kansas State University.
